“My Candle Light”

DownUp +3

When I was born, a candle was lit.
Mom, you are the candle that was lit,
and that continues to shine day and night
You are the light that continues to guide my path,
in the midst of the darkness that exists in this world.

When I am hungry, I look towards the lit candle,
When I am afraid I look towards the lit candle,
When I need guidance, I look towards the lit candle,
and when I need to hear those words “I Love You,”
I look towards the lit candle.

See this lit candle of mine, I know will never go out.
This light will continue to shine
when all other lights no longer exist.

Sometimes when I am alone,
or when the thought of day that my GOD will want this candle
To shine in his kingdom,
I look to heaven and give thanks up to him
For the blessing of this light.
When this light no longer exists in my presence,
it will continue to shine in my heart.
This candle light is not only external, but is also internal.

Mom, I embrace our love,
and I want to take this opportunity to say thank you!
Thank you for keeping me, when you could have given me away.
Thank you for loving me, just because I am your’s.
Mom, thank you for being My Candle Light.

Mother

DownUp 0

When I was a little girl, sitting on you knee
I never could imagine, the Mother you would be
As I grew, I realized how blessed my life would be
Because you are my Mother, it means the world to me
So,Eventhough I’m far away, and can’t be there today.
Always know you’re in my Heart Forever there to stay.

Beauty Bouquet

DownUp 0

There’s a girl who walks the scenic trail.
The one with the long ponytail.
The way it blows in the breeze.
Can bring a fellow to his knees.

She’s pure as sunshine.
Mellow as aged wine.
Mystical as a Hawaiian sunrise.
A beauty bouquet for the eyes.

Lost In Your Embrace

DownUp +1

I never knew I didn’t exist before you
You looked into my eyes and saw the real me
never judging, always there
you saw what others could not see.

I was more myself with you than ever
How did you “get me” so fast
I dreamed you would be mine one day
Even though it wasn’t meant to last.

We lived a fantasy lie, you and I
Others left waiting for us to return
Anything to spend a few stolen moments together
Forever etched in my heart those memories burn.

But time was never on our side it seemed
In my dreams I still see your handsome face
Always living for those magical moments
I was forever lost in your embrace.

I miss your sweet kisses baby every minute of the day
and the way you used to hold me so tight
I wish we never had to end our love affair
But breaking someones heart can never be right.

Why

DownUp +1

My pulse quickens,
My breath shortens,
My eyes are focused on my goal,
My goal is you.

I come closer,
You walk away.
I scream your name,
and you turn away.

What is it that made your love go away?
Did I push you away?
Or had it always been this way?
Was I just a game for you to play?

You tell me you love me,
then you walk away.
I don’t know whether to follow you or to stay away.
I don’t know why you don’t love me anymore,
so please tell me why.

Once apon a time….

You are now in the past,
but now i am in the future.

On now what have began as ONCE UPON A TIME,
now ending as THE END.

On now what we used to be is now in the past
and now there is now need to cry.

Cause now i am facing the future on my own,
With my many questions to be answered.

I I WANT I WISH I NEED

DownUp 0

I WANT YOU AND I TO GROW OLD
I WANT YOU TO HOLD ME WHEN THE NIGHTS ARE COLD
I WANT YOU TO KISS ME GOOD NIGHT
I WANT YOU TO HOLD ME AND EVERYTHING SUDDENLY BE ALRIGHT

I WISH THAT I COULD SEE YOUR SMILE EVERY SINGLE DAY
I WISH THAT EVERYONE WHO EVEY HURT YOU WOULD PAY
I WISH I COULD CARRY YOUR SMILE IN MY HEART
I WISH WE WOULD NEVER GROW APART

I NEED TO FEEL YOUR LIPS ON MINE
I NEED FOR YOU TO GIVE ME A SIGN
I NEED YOU NEXT TO ME FOR AN ETERNITY
I NEED YOU TO A COMPANY ME ON THIS LONG JOURNEY.
